06: Testing? Testing? 123???

Kaela and Sarah talk about all the female diagnostic tests the ladies have to endure before they can start fertility treatments- from blood tests all the way to surgery. They have had pretty much every test between the two of them and tell you what to expect and how to prepare. 

Kaela also gives a great analogy on how the hormones during a menstrual cycle work!

04: RE there yet?

Kaela & Sarah discuss infertility around the holidays and April Fool’s Day pregnancy announcements.  Plus, they give tips and advice on choosing a Reproductive Endocrinologist - how to find one, how to prepare for your first visit, and what to expect!  They also discuss the stigma of infertility, why it exists, and ways we can eliminate it - you’re already doing one of them.

03: Are you a POASer?

Sarah & Kaela discuss the dreaded two week wait - and some practical (and not so practical) ways to cope with it.  They also share experiences from other Mafia members about how their lives changed when they told people they were trying to conceive.  Here’s some hints: overbearing Mom’s, awkward family gatherings, and friends who sarcastically offer up their husband’s sperm...yeah you read that right.

02: WTF is TTC???

Kaela & Sarah dive deep into what it means to be a TTCer!  In this episode, they explore a number of things people do when trying to conceive.  Some practical, some not so much! Included in the conversation are - ovulation trackers, cervical checks, timed sex, acupuncture, fertility diets, supplements, and ball cooling underwear (to name a few)!

 

We also gave a product shoutout that we inadvertently got W-R-O-N-G!  Can you spot it?! Don’t worry, we correct ourselves in an upcoming episode. ;-)
